I was going to get up and leave the computer forty-five minutes ago, except that Certain Parties decided that they Really Needed to snuggle. And last night was kind of chaotic for the doglet, not very snuggly, so I decided to go with it despite the vertigo. And now I have finished this short story, finally. "Five Ways to Ruin a First Date" is as done as it will get for the foreseeable future.
Thanks, Helpful Poodle!
Uff da. We go rest elsewhere and look at something else.
